Fly Vines - Giveaway and Discount Code

A couple months ago I was tipped off on Fly Vines (Thanks Headhunters Fly Shop Blog) and sent off an email to them which has resulted in this month's giveaway of several lanyards and a T.F.M. discount code to take advantage of a buy one lanyard and get one free.


Fly Vines has been around for a couple years now and when the fellows aren't shooting or editing 406 Productions film or building Adipose Boatworks drifters they can be found twisting recycled fly lines into lanyards and bracelets over a couple cold brews. 


To win a lanyard this month just leave a comment on this post and tell me how you'll use a Fly Vines Lanyard?  Warmwater, coldwater, saltwater, brownwater, or what?  The random number generator will help chose a few winners at the end of the month.   

If you'd like to purchase a Fly Vines Lanyard then use the code "TFM0411" and you'll receive a second lanyard for each lanyard purchased.

Great to see worn out fly lines seeing a second life and ending up some place other than the trash can.

I love to do "impromptu" angling, kit in the truck, dash down and see what there is to see. A lanyard would be handy for this minimalist approach to fly angling.

bigwalnutfly said...

kit always in the trunk tailrace to east and warm water to the west

goneflyfishing said...

I can see how this lanyard would allow me to even more simplify my Tenkara approach. Just have it ready to go.

Josh said...

I would cut it down and knot it to replace zipper pulls (hint hint to Recycled Waders and Fly Vines...hopefully these two start ups can work together to continue to recycle used fly gear) on my gear. Which I do now anyways, but having an extra would save me time!

cliftz said...

I'd probably use it to hold my tippet spools, because I still have 3 or 4 in my pockets when I'm fishing in the freshwater here. Great idea.

Sam said...

I turned 16 on the third and I need a Lanyard to hold my car keys! I can also throw some nippers on for the impromptu fishing excursion.

Maddy said...

I turn 16 in about a month, so a a lanyard could hold some fishing accessories now and my keys later!

flyfishermanj said...

lanyard + 7wt+ popper ='s smallie slayer!!

PigsEye said...

A lanyard might be just the thing I need to help decrease the amount of stuff I carry on the river.

Trev Sliwkanich said...

Minimalist at heart, I'd use it to strap a few necessary tools (nippers, grippers, etc) for my small stream FFing.

jesper said...

Lanyards are not very common over here and having one would make me the cool kid on the block!

eric said...

A lanyard would be perfect for minimalist backpacking & trout fishing in the NC mountains. I might even also use it at home to hold glasses, keys, etc., because I hate having stuff in my pockets. Sure, it's look kind of dorky. But in a cool way. Right?

Owl said...

I'm in. You hooked me with a tweet. I'd use it to hold my Dave's Bug Float, which just happens to be the most amazing bug float ever made. ( really.)

The Jersey Angler said...

I'd use it to secure my Tenkara fly box to my waders. Maybe this year I won't give a hundred or so Tenkara flies to the river gods

Sam said...

With a new lanyard, a box of select beads (yes, beads) a few choice streams, I'd be set for slaying solid Rainbows on the Kenai or the Kvicak!

ratfacedmcdougal said...

Just the thing for Brookie fishing when the vest is way too much.

R. M. Slayton said...

I'd use a couple of 'em to tye up the wife,,,, so I could go fishin! What were you guys thinking? Sick sick sick! But then again, Hmmmm?

Fontinalis Rising said...

Since this is the year of the carp.....

Brian Koz said...

Simone said she 'Loves the colors' and they "would never be boring" lika all the grey and brown daddy wears when he goes fishing. She woulr be proud to represent when she hits the rivers with her very own lanyard...

The Daily Record said...

I'm a photographer for a baltimore, md newspaper and would love to walk into the statehouse in annapolis with my media credentials hanging from fly line!

Barry said...

A lanyard is a beautiful and simplistic tool for the caster of fur and feather. With a lanyard one can basically eliminate the need for a vest. I carry tippet, nippers, hemo's, floatant, nail knot tool, my trout scout's dog tags, and much more on my lanyard. Gotta love a lanyard... especially one created from recycled material. Upstream is downstream.

Blake said...

use it to keep my nalgen hooked to my back pack when wading. i hate having to unhook a clasp to get a drink of water.

eric said...

Hummm, I would use the lanyard to keep all my gadgets in place. Nothing worse when you are trying to go simple buy have no where for nippers, forceps, fly floatant,etc... The lanyard would be the ticket!

Rachel said...

Love the Fly Vines. Mine would see warm water here in Alabama...cold water when we go to Tennessee or North GA and maybe eventually some salt.

Anash said...

my hubby would use this for sure!

Thanks for this splendid giveaway

shesamaniyak.com said...

I can think of several uses, but first choice would be for my nippers since I use them the most. Awesome idea!

fishpimp said...

I'd unravel it, taking care to remember how it braids back together, maybe take some notes. Then I'd trap a stinky muskrat with a spiffy noose trap. I'd hang this rat from an easily seen branch around water that gets frequent pressure but that should belong to me fer a day. With the rest of the lanyard I'd set up a perimeter sort of like police tape at a crime scene (to the waters edge) around the poor, murdered muskrat. Peeps would be pretty sketched by the scene and I may have a nice quiet day outta the ICU to my friggin' self!

CoyoteLuke1 said...

I'd use one for a fashion statement because fishing is always on my mind.

Stephanie and Dustin said...

Tippet! These would be perfect for holding spool, so I don't have the spools stuffed in my pocket.

southernflyfishing1530 said...

I'd keep it in the car for those impromptu fishing trip...

BigBenAlex said...

As a young angler new to drift boat fishing i am trying to keep my gear organized and keep the learning process as simple as possible. the fly vines lanyard would make my life much easier keeping necessities organized and in one place. It also has the nice break away feature in emergency situations.

Tenkara Fly Fishing said...

Nice way to carry a spool and leader material and a clipper plus hemo.

Good way to recycle plastic fly lines.

Kibbee said...

In the morning at work I would use it fully loaded for my badge holder, then unclip the badge and go straight to an "off-site environmental meeting" in the afternoon.

the common life said...

Like most folks shared I am a minimalist and this would be a great tool for a quick stop at my local river. Also recently I had some surgery and carrying less weight would be a huge help for the next month or so as my pack is very full.

Mike said...

A spool of tippet, a pair of nippers and forceps. Nothing more is needed and the Fly Vine lanyard should do the trick. Thanks for the opportunity.

Gaffer said...

Another great idea from the folks at Headhunters.

If I were the lucky recipient I would attach it to my hair like all the cool kids & thier grizzly hackle.

Kidding aside, I think that I need to pair down my old lanyard. It is too bulky.

deanwo said...

Cool Lanyards and great idea for spent lines. Guess I would use them for tippet and a nipper. Won't know the best use until we get to try one.

Pat said...

I love having nippers and tippet on a lanyard.

joemathis said...

Actually need two. One for the fly gear stash in the truck. the other for my fly gear stash in the truck, when I can't find the first one.

shane said...

The Fly Vine lanyard would be perfect for those late afternoon evening trips to a local bluegill pond. It would give the other folks a new question to ask the lone lone fly angler (me) instead of the usual "Are there trout in that pond?" because everyone knows you only fly fish for trout.

onelastcast said...

I have been looking for a cool lanyard to hold my tippet and this is a great idea.

Morgan Kupfer said...

Brackish water, in the Chesapeake bay baby for my leaders and tools!

Dave said...

Hitting Lake Michigan harbors and park ponds on the way home from work. The less to carry on bike the better!

onemoredeer said...

Great idea! As a long time lanyard user, the fly line lanyard would be one less thing to dry out after a day of wet wading.

Joshua said...

Cold water bows on the Guadalupe and some Reds down in the Laguna Madre. Cold water, warm water, beer and water, outta state, all ovet real estate. I would probably even find a reason to have it on in the deer blind.....been known to wear my buff while rattlin and scanning the sky for dove missiles.

Neil said...

I need a lanyard to replace my misplaced vest. Its nerve wracking to fumble in shirt pockets for tippet, tools and spare flies. I am minimalist generally, but this bulging shirt pocket thing is too minimal

jean said...

Use it when I just need the basics to fish right after work.
